This page provides information on the whole process of booking and using the lecture capture system. Lecture capture is a system which allows you to make automatic recordings of your lectures or presentations without having to set up a camera, microphone or other recording equipment. You must make a booking in advance and the system will automatically switch on and start recording at the appropriate time. After this, you can publish the recording(s) to your students by adding the Echo360 block to your Moodle page. The system allows you to record audio, the computer screen and video. You do not need to record video if you do not want to. Many people opt for "slides-and-audio" recording only - although the system will record whatever you show on the PC, the visualiser or a laptop, not just PowerPoint slides.
